Lake County Background Check

Background checks refer to the process by which a person seeks to obtain as much information as he could about the past of a person, his subject, for purpose that range from simple curiosity to in order to build a criminal case against the subject. Background checks have become increasingly common over the past few decades owing to the changing nature of the world, and nowadays, Lake County Background Checks, as are all other background checks, have become an indispensable, if not yet a required, process in a lot of everyday processes such as hiring and even just moving into a new neighborhood.

The fact that background checks are becoming more common had done a lot to simplify such processes, however, background checks with the help of formal agencies still costs upwards of hundreds of dollars and still take some time. There are some processes in background checks that would require the manpower of these agencies, but most of the information that could be obtained through these agencies could actually be obtained by the user himself using a number of resources, foremost of which are public records that are available to the general public at all times.

The three main public records that could be used when doing a background check are arrest records, court records and prison records, though by no means are these three the only records that one could use when trying to come up with a background check report. These records are classified as non-vital public records and because of this, they are relatively easy to obtain. Of course, because these records are filed and kept at separate offices, the originals of these records are located in different geographic locations, but there is a central repository of the same in the form of the Office of the Recorder whose primary duty includes making, keeping, and securing these records for reasons of posterity.

A person who wishes to get his hands on a copy of a public record from the office of the recorder would first have to obtain permission to look into the archive. Once that permission is given, and it almost always is given as a matter of public policy, the searcher is now free to enter the room where the records are kept, the archives as it were, and search this room for the record. Due to the sheer volume of records, it may be advisable to ask for the assistance of a member of the staff, though this is, by no means required. Either way, once the records had been located, the searcher could actually make his notes there and then, though he must take care not to damage or alter the record at any way. It is, however, advised, that the searcher should just procure his own copy of the record, and this is done by bringing the record to the records keeper and asking for a copy. After paying the required copying fee, at one dollar per regular sized page, plus another two dollars per document for the certification of the same. Note that only at this office could copies be certified.

Of course, the searcher may also just use online databases to locate for the copies of these records. Online databases are faster and more efficient, with some of them providing their services for free despite the fact that their databases are virtual clones of government databases. In addition, some of these databases advertise for services of background check agencies, though again, these agencies typically charge upwards of hundreds of dollars for their services. As with all searches using the internet, a database search using this medium would not have lines and rarely does the searcher have to leave his home in order to conduct the search.

  • If there are no records, you would be informed of the same and you could ask for a certification of the same.
  • Locate the record
  • You may make your notes inside the records hall or you could ask for a copy of the record.
